This recipe has two preparations. First we will make the filling, which needs several hours of restand later we finish off the braid already in the oven.
So for the filling we beat the eggs with the sugar and a splash of milk. Heat the rest of the milk in a saucepan until it boils and lower the heat and add the chocolate and stir with a rod until incorporated.
Add the egg mixture and continue beating until it reaches 82 degrees. Remove the mixture to a container and film flush, letting rest at least six hours in the fridge.
Preheat the oven to 190ºC and then make six or seven cuts to the puff pastry on its long sides at 45 degrees of angle leaving about 10 central centimeters of strip without cutting.
